President Trump Asked About Trump Jr.’s Tiger King Pardon Suggestion At Press Conference

Trump hasn’t seen the series.

A reporter asked President Trump about the viral Netflix series ‘Tiger King’ during Wednesday’s press conference, and Trump perhaps jokingly suggested he’d look into a presidential pardon for exotic animal park operator Joe Exotic.

Watch the exchange here:

Donald Trump Jr. had casually suggested it wouldn’t be impossible for President Trump to consider a pardon or clemency for Joe Exotic during an appearance on a radio show Tuesday, and his father correctly deduced that his younger son had floated the idea.

Trump apparently has heard of the show, stating that he’s “been waiting for somebody to ask me about that,” but he hasn’t seen it, probably on account of the presidential work schedule during the coronavirus epidemic.

The President asked Jim Acosta for his opinion on the Tiger King saga, with the nominal ‘reporter’ pretending that he’s too much of an objective, serious journalist to speak about the series during the press conference.

The Tiger King series has taken off in great part because of the inability of many Americans to participate in everyday life during the coronavirus epidemic.

Exotic, who is profiled in depth in the documentary series, ran an exotic animal park in Wynnewood, Oklahoma. He was arrested in 2018 and ultimately convicted for a supposed plot to assassinate an animal rights campaigner in Florida, a saga that is detailed in length in the documentary. Exotic maintains his innocence, and reports indicate that he is actively seeking a presidential pardon from President Trump.

Jim Acosta Calls Conservative Media a “Disinformation-Industrial Complex” and “Potential Existential Threat”

Project much, Jim?

CNN’s Jim Acosta appeared on Brian Stelter’s Sunday morning show “Reliable Sources” to call conservative media a “potential existential threat” that could “cause more suffering.”

Referring to the on-screen graph that shows a significant drop in engagement with Trump-related articles, Stelter asked Acosta if he thought this “quiet period” was temporary. Acosta replied as follows:

I think it is temporary. I do think what this country faces right now […] I describe it as the disinformation-industrial complex, and that is Trump and his people, conservative outlets like Fox News, and then conservative websites and organizations aligned with the president, and conservative platforms. These three pillars of this disinformation-industrial complex essentially helped put Trump in power, kept him in power, sustained his grip on the Republican Party, and it remains a threat to our democracy. It is the reason why there were hundreds of Trump supporters storming the Capitol on January 6. And until that poison, that toxin, is drained from the national political discourse in this country, Brian, I do think that these forces represent a potential existential threat to this country and have the potential to come back and cause more suffering in the days to come.”

Acosta does not seem to realize, however, that the popularity and influence of right-wing outlets like Big League Politics are direct consequences of “journalists” like him and networks like CNN. They’re the original traffickers in disinformation and in fanning the flames of fearmongering. Alternative conservative media would not have taken off if the mainstream media weren’t so unbearably leftist.
